Body of missing girl found on Long Beach shore

The Associated Press

LONG BEACH — Authorities have recovered the body of an 11-year-old girl, two days after she was swept away by the surf off a Southwest Washington beach.

The girl’s body washed ashore Saturday morning, said Long Beach Police Chief Flint Wright. He identified her as Lindsey Mustread.

The girl and her 9-year-old brother had been wading in the surf on the Long Beach Peninsula on Thursday when they apparently got caught in a riptide.

Her brother, Kenneth, was rescued that afternoon after treading water for about a half-hour. A Coast Guard air and water search for the girl lasted seven hours Thursday.

Wright has said the family is from Chimacum on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula.
